Brenda’s Journey at the Langdon Center

November 16, 2023

Choosing to have a facelift can be one of the most positive experiences in your life. Finding the right surgeon and team will make your facelift journey a restorative and fulfilling one. Brenda is just one of many patients who can’t say enough about how a facelift at the Langdon Center has changed their lives. Follow her journey from consultation to recovery and learn what makes the Langdon Center your destination for the ExpresS-Lift facelift. 

Meet Brenda

Brenda is a 71-year-old woman who enjoys going out, socializing, and leading a busy life. She chose a facelift to address signs of aging and rejuvenate her appearance. An ExpresS-Lift with Dr. Langdon offered her desired results with less recovery time or discomfort than a traditional facelift to fit her busy, social lifestyle.

Brenda’s Initial Consultation

Your initial consultation serves many purposes. It allows you to meet your surgeon and decide how you feel about them and their aesthetic philosophy. It also lets Dr. Langdon assess your skin and facial features so he can recommend the best procedure for your needs. As Brenda experienced, Dr. Langdon will take his time to understand your goals and develop a customized treatment plan. 

Brenda’s Procedure

Dr. Langdon’s ExpresS-Lift procedure differs from a traditional facelift in several ways. Brenda describes that the ExpresS-Lift uses local anesthesia with sedation instead of general anesthesia. Like Brenda, patients feel relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. Her surgery time of three hours is fairly typical. 

Along with the type of anesthesia, an ExpresS-Lift differs from other facelifts in several ways. 

  • The local anesthetic prevents bleeding, which limits post-surgical bruising and swelling.
  • It uses smaller incisions and less invasive techniques for less discomfort and a faster recovery. 
  • It adjusts the SMAS (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system) layers under the skin for a natural, rejuvenated appearance. 
  • It lifts at natural-looking angles and will not produce the overdone or excessively tightened look that some facelifts create. 

Some “less invasive” procedures are actually mini-facelifts that adjust only the skin without addressing the SMAS layers. Dr. Langdon’s ExpresS-Lift is a full “deep plane” facelift with optimal and long-lasting results. 

Brenda’s procedure experience is much like the one most patients describe. Being awake but relaxed and calm during the procedure eliminates the risks of general anesthesia and makes waking up from surgery much more pleasant.

Brenda’s Aftercare 

Your Langdon Center team loves to hear from people like Brenda who breeze through their recovery without looking back. Most people will feel minimal discomfort after surgery. Many do not need anything stronger than over-the-counter pain medication. Like Brenda, you will usually receive antibiotics to start taking the day before your facelift and for several days afterward. 

Dr. Langdon will provide clear instructions to help you care for your incisions and when to resume your usual activities. Most people can return to work and light activities within one to two weeks after their ExpresS-Lift. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure a positive recovery experience. 

Brenda’s Recovery

Not everyone will feel comfortable socializing a week after their ExpresS-Lift. However, many people feel like Brenda and cannot wait to get out and show the world their rejuvenated appearance. You would have more bruising and swelling after a traditional facelift that could limit your social activities for several weeks. 

Brenda’s reduced post-surgical swelling and bruising is one of the benefits of the ExpresS-Lift procedure. The use of local anesthetic and less invasive techniques causes much less tissue trauma for less swelling and faster healing. 

As Brenda explains, her scars have already started to fade, which will continue over the following months. Your scars will eventually become nearly invisible. Dr. Langdon uses the smallest possible incisions for minimal scars.
